I live and work in the North York Moors area

I'm a qualified hedgelayer and have laid hedges in Ireland, Holland and in the UK. I'm also a drystone waller and have built houses (and walls), garden features, gate entrances in Ireland, Australia and in England.

I've been told I'm a bit of walling and hedgelaying nerd. But I don't mind it because it's normal. Doesn't everyone stop and take pictures of these when they are on holiday?

Some of the site contains my work along with pictures of hedges, walls and walling features from places I've visited. It should be pretty obvious which is my work.

Howdale (2)

A long wall for me, 260 meters  and I've still another 60 to do. Howdale moor on the right and Howdale Farm on the left.  The wall is built on a slight ridge and has a deep ditch running alongside making the rebuild somewhat tricky.

North Dale

North Dale which runs into Rosedale on the NYM contains this little gem.  Something I've not seen before together.  An old gate entrance blocked up and a sheep creep built into it. The sheep creep isn't used any more now and just off picture there is a nice set of stone steps over the wall, no doubt put in when the gate was blocked off.
